Diversity and Inclusion at Umicore

People and their talent are Umicore’s greatest asset for long-term success. We recognize each individual’s uniqueness and appreciate diversity of thought.  From this, we believe innovation and growth are the by-products of diverse perspectives. Therefore, at Umicore, we welcome all individuals and value their diverse backgrounds. But what do we mean by diversity?  

Diversity includes gender, religion, race, national or ethnic origin, cultural background, social group, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, age, or political opinion. However, diversity is meaningless without inclusion. Together, we build an inclusive, equal, collaborative, supportive, and respectful environment. We empower and encourage employees to engage at work and support each other. An inclusive and diverse workplace ensures our employees wellbeing, making Umicore a great place to work. 

At Umicore we take actions on local, regional and global level to improve our diversity rate and further work on an inclusive culture. Discover our latest stories below.
